This particular type of Opuntia isn’t as cuddly as the name would suggest, as relatively furry looking spines potrude from their distinctive oval shaped ‘ears’ that grow on top of one another. This Opuntia is really eye catching due to it’s distinctive outline, and if cared for correctly will reward you with some rapid growth during the summer months.
The added bonus of is cactus is how easy it is to care for. It is best placed in the brightest spot available so long as it is not in direct sunlight, as this can lead to scorching. As for any cactus, water regularly throughout the growing season, and ensure that the compost is free draining so the roots never sit in water. Allow compost to dry out completely between waters. Stop watering this plant during winter months to allow it to go dormant until the next growing season.
